Solo Vehicle Crash Fatally Injures Stockton Man
I’m Ed Smith, a Stockton, personal injury attorney. A man suffered fatal injuries in a solo vehicle crash along Interstate 5 in the vicinity of Eight Mile Road in southwest Lodi during the midnight hour of Friday, April 20, 2018. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) indicated that the man was behind the wheel of his 2001 Toyota traveling southbound along Interstate 5 when, for unknown reasons, the vehicle drifted off the roadway and continued a short distance and into the median. The man attempted to correct his car by turning back toward the road but reportedly crossed all lanes of travel, collided with a guardrail post and overturned down an embankment at approximately 12:40 am. Authorities found the Toyota on its roof located near the southbound Eight Mile Road exit. The man was identified by the San Joaquin County Coroner’s Office as 24-year-old Marcus Yoshii of Stockton, a native of Hawaii and 2015 graduate of the University of the Pacific.
